Feeding frenzy?


No, reading frenzy. And reading Frenzy. Courtesy of ace photographer EllaRegina—and the well-stocked independent bookstore where she photographed me. She calls it "Twin Peeks"!
This is an alternate version of the photo, by the way. To see it in a frenzy of color, visit the blog of the collection's magnificent editor, Alison Tyler.

Now this is some serious photojournalism as well as lovely art that makes a statement.

Well done!

Jolene said...

Double my pleasure, Mr. Edwards!

At first I thought I was seeing double after dipping into Frenzy. It is very hot. Something about quickies and sex go together well--how many stories did you manage to sneak in during your "twin peek"?

Jeremy Edwards said...

As I recall, my right eye read eight stories, and my left eye read nine. (My left eye is the stronger one—which is why it always carries the groceries.)

Hey Jeremy,

I got my copy of Frenzy a couple days ago.

You once called my story "Suspension" an instant erotic classic. Well, I feel the same about "You in Your Apricot Panties."

Truly an outstanding short short, loaded with action.

Well done.

Wow, thank you, Craig!

And your spamword definition made me laugh out loud, first thing in the morning! I hope Heidi sees it, too—if I understand correctly, she's abso-facking-lutely crazy about Australia.

My Frenzy has arrived, too, but I haven't had a chance to read any of your stories yet.* I have a lot of delicious catching up to do!

*Yes, I admit it: The readshot was faked. Oh, we were really there, and the books were really in stock (and in my hands) ... but no actual reading occurred. I'm sorry, but I have my boundaries. I'll do whatever kinds of explicit scenes you want with a book—even multiple books—but it's in my contract that I will not do any unsimulated reading on camera. That's something that's just very private for me, and most of the photographers I work with respect that.

There ought to be some sort of public warning when you and EllaRegina occupy the same building - I'm worried that the universe may reach a surrealist humour critical mass and tear a hole in reality!

EllaRegina said...

Jeremy was also very respectful of product. I wanted him to hold the book a certain way which meant he might have to open the pages more and he didn't want to "damage" the binding for a prospective reader. Not that I did but just to show you what a thoughtful man Mr. Edwards is.

HAHAHAH, Janine!

Two things in response to that:

1) How do you know that building really existed? Just because you see a picture of it doesn't necessarily mean it was really there.

2) How do you know that the building, if there really was one, is still standing? In fact, when I strolled by there yesterday it was an empty lot filled with smouldering brick and fish on bicycles.
